    Excellent. Just as I'm about to shake the rust off what little skill I have for a project, I find this. Spiffy!

    NMM Gold Recipe

    From the amazing Ark of Rackham fame:
    The colors I use for NMM Gold are Green Ochre 914 for the dark zones, Light Yellow 949 for the light zones and White 951 for the brightness.

    BTW - the colors he is referring to are Vallejo Model color.

    Fast & Easy marble bases
    Fast & Easy marble bases

    Ever looked at marble tile and thought a base that looked like that would be great? Only to be stopped by the amount of work that it would take?

    Perhaps it will take less work than you think....

    There are 100s of cheap vinyl tiles on the market and many home supply stores do sell individual tiles. I have even found them in dollar stores.

    Youll need:

    A 1 square vinyl tile with adhesive backing.
    A base, square bases will be the easiest to cut the tile for.
    A marker or pen.
    A Blade; razor, X-acto, box cutter etc.
    A straight edge to guide the blade for a proper cut.
    A small drill bit for insert holes
    A painted mini to look good on the base.

    My communities:

    Hi Pogre and fellow Painters,

    The following by ***Mario Fuentes seems a worthy addition to your page:

    Mario Fuentes - Basic Tutoral

    It's on the Vallejo website and is a good basic painting tutorial that emphasises the importance of watering down your paints as well as other classic fundamentals. I highly recommend this.

    ***To get to the tutorial, you need to select your preferred language (English flag), select "Model Color" option), go to the bottom of the page and select the "introduction" link. A little awkward I know but it really is an excellent tutorial.

    Best Regards
    Herremann the Wise

    PS: Mods, does this excellent thread deserve being stickied or what?
    Imagination is a quality given a man to compensate him for what he is not,
    and a sense of humor was provided to console him for what he is.

    He who is certain he knows the ending of things when he is only beginning them is either extremely wise or extremely foolish; no matter which is true, he is certainly an unhappy man, for he has put a knife in the heart of wonder.

    Actually, just right clicking on the link and "copy shortcut" worked for me

    Direct link to english article

    Yes, Make this thread sticky!
